    Elvis Costello Appreciation Thread...

    Listening to Imperial Bedroom now. Could there be a more consistently great album? One great song flowing into the next. Probably my fave Costello album and one of my top albums overall.

    Costello is amazing.


    I'm listening to Blood and Chocolate right now. Great album. They're all great albums.

    Ever wonder where the Napoleon Dynamite got its name from?

    I agree and could say that My Aim Is True and Armed Forces are equally consistently great. Each of the three albums is the perfection of a different idiom.
    Fredke commented in your thread. You won't believe what happens next!

    Gotta throw out "Trust" and "This Years Model" as good albums as well. But I agree, Imperial Bedroom is excellent, read this post, then put it on my turn table. Thanks!

    My favorite:
    "Get Happy" I'm not sure why, I think it just coincides with a very good time in my life. Saw the Attractions with Squeeze. Good double bill.
